Restaurants, consumers brace for recession

Leigh Anne Zinsmeister shares insight and analysis on restaurant quarterly earnings


Welcome to First Bite, a Nation’s Restaurant News podcast, your daily source of news from NRN hosted by Holly Petre.

Today, we’re analyzing the latest in restaurant second quarterly earnings.

The last time First Bite did an earnings report was two weeks ago and we covered the financial ins and outs of brands ranging from Chipotle to Starbucks with our managing editor Leigh Anne Zinsmeister.

Since the last time we caught up with Zinsmeister for earnings, 24 restaurant chains have reported.

That includes brands like Taco Bell, KFC, First Watch, Firehouse Subs, Burger King, Popeye’s, Sweetgreen, and more.

That’s a lot to talk about but First Bite has you covered.

Here Zinsmeister is with an overview of what happened these past two weeks.

Plus, catch up on all the top news of the day with our daily news recap at the beginning of each episode.
